Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Day 2 of our trip home I saw a billboard advertising North America's Largest Amethyst Mine.  Of course we had to stop! My birthday is in February for crying out loud!!!

One of life's small blessings is that we arrived two days after they opened for the season!  I would have been so disappointed if they had been closed.

We were so excited to find amethysts just laying on the ground right in the parking lot!

 In my opinion, it is the prettiest of all the birthstones.  I would rather have amethysts than diamonds...(hint hint hubby...10th anniversary not too far away)

Away we went on an amethyst digging adventure.  It was so much fun hunting for treasure...until I sliced my hand open.  Raw amethysts are very very sharp!  Anyway, wasn't too serious and we ended up with some really nice pieces.
